Let me start by saying I have some strong feelings about a few of these new products. Some of them I enjoyed, one product I have already gotten rid of, and quite a few of them were just a little disappointing.
Though I didn’t just pick up the Marc Jacobs Hiliner or the Smashbox Full Exposure mascara, this was my first shot using them. On application, both of these products were fantastic, but I find when I wear the Smashbox mascara for any length of time, it smudges under my eyes. It was disappointing since I love how it makes my lashes look initially. I still am undecided about the Marc Jacobs liner.
I like how my complexion looks here using the Physicians Formula Argan Wear BB Cream and the LA Girl Pro Conceal. My one issue with this BB cream is that I break out in painful spots. I am not sure the reason since I have had success with other BB Creams and Argan oil products. It also does separate in the tube so it is a mess to apply. The concealer on the other hand is quite good, but a tiny bit cakey.
I enjoyed all but one of my new Colourpop goodies. My biggest issue is this liquid lipstick. I picked up two of the Ultra Matte lips and only have an issue with Love Bug in particular. It literally crumbles off (which you can see on my chin). It is also not a flattering texture for my lips so I have already said goodbye to this lippie.
I’ll end this post with my two favourites of the bunch: The Annabelle Blushon and the Colourpop Where The Night Is quad. They apply beautifully, look bomb, stay on and stay put all day. The pigment is there and as long as you are ok with applying make up with your fingers (which I am usually not, but for these, it’s worth it), I totally recommend. The colours in this particular quad are so unique and phenomenal, and of course, Kathleen Lights is one of the YouTubers I watch constantly.
